I have been cooking since I was a young girl and love experimenting with different flavours. I started my own business 25 years ago creating multi-award-winnning curry sauces, chutneys and pickles and for the past 10 years have also been doing Indian Vegetarian cookery experiences which are suitable for those on a FODMAP friendly diet, vegans, coeliacs and anyone with food intolerances. There is a large selection of dishes to make. With in-depth knowlege of spices, how to use them and with hints and tips along the way, my small, friendly demonstrations are very popular to create nutritious meals easily for one's family and friends.
